    Default Mosley says PBF and Canelo have about the same punching power

    I thought that was interesting. Does Floyd hit harder than most people give him credit for, or is Canelo not a big puncher at 154?

    Floyd does not have the power of Alvarez, Shane has taken too many punches.
    Do not let success go to your head and do not let failure get to your heart.

    He's been hit by both guys and still sounds articulate, so I dunno... Maybe Saul isn't as big a puncher as we give him credit for.

    First thing that crossed my mind...

    Floyd's brittle hands is why he doesn't sit down more on the punches, and why he wears Winning gloves instead of Reyes.
    When Floyd showed up wearing the Reyes a few fights ago, I said, "Oh yeah, Floyd must've got the Xylocaine performance-enhancer injections in his hands, (banned in most states, but legal in Las Vegas, Nevada where Floyd likes to fight because of it), numb the hands 'cause he's planning on punching a little harder tonight."

    I'm not sure Floyd still injects his hands but he wears Grants not Winning which are middle of the road punchers gloves just below Reyes. Duran used them as did Tyson, Leonard and others.

    Good call which I had to check.
    Mayweather used to wear Winning, but he hasn't since the Judah fight in 2006, and had been wearing Winning previous agaisnt Sharmba Mitchell, Arturo Gatti, Bruseles, Corley
    Yep, Floyd's been wearing the Grants, but they're not as hard as the Mexican-made Cleto-Reyes puncher's gloves that Pacquiao favors...

    Yeah, I saw an interview of Mosley saying that too. I always figured Floyd hit harder than the public opinion but he just doesn't sit on his punches a lot throughout a fight because of his movement. Against Mosley he sat down a lot more on his punches than usual so Mosley got a good gauge of those punches. I think they do hit close to the same but Canelo throws more of his harder punches a lot more often and this gives the impression of being a harder puncher. Its a percentage game. Floyd can hit you with 4 or 5 of his 70 percenters and only take 1 or your 90 percenters. (Most hit and not be hit shots probably teeter around 70 percent of your power)

    Yeah, I thought it was silly when people were saying "ohhh Mosley stopped fighting." No, Floyd made him stop fighting with his precision countering and POWER. Floyd's no Matthysse but he can keep guys honest for sure.

    his speed and accuracy will add to the perception of power

    I watched Matthew Hatton in a weight too high walk through Alvarez punches. I also watched a very boring fight vs Mosely.

    Alvarez looks to me another Abraham thats strong in the weight hes boiling down to but will be nothing at all in the weight above.

    Good point and you may be right.

    He was the only man to put Trout down.

    Well then id say he was intimidated by Shanes speed and by fuck he's going to be just like Abraham (a turtle in his shell) if that is the case.

    True but Trout himself never really fought anyone outside of a washed up Cotto.
